HSTS Taekwon-Do

Power Breaking Workshop

On July 1st, we had an incredible 3-hour power breaking workshop exclusively for adults and those aged 13 and above, regardless of grade. It was an amazing experience that allowed us to push our boundaries and test our technique, accuracy, distance, angle, and attacking tools.

Breaking boards or bricks not only challenges us physically but also helps us understand the importance of proper technique and execution. Some techniques require conditioning, while others utilize our natural protection. If breaking techniques have caught your interest, then incorporating conditioning into your training regime might be a great next step for you.

During this workshop, we delved deep into the world of breaking techniques and covered a variety of topics. Here’s a glimpse of what we explored together:

✅ Correct technique: Mastering the fundamental principles behind powerful breaks.

✅ Correct distances: Understanding the optimal range to generate maximum impact.

✅ Correct angles: Learning how to position ourselves for effective breaks.

✅ The difference between self-defence/pattern techniques and breaking techniques: Looking at what set them apart.

✅ Theory of power: Exploring the underlying mechanics that generate strength and force.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg! Master Horan provided valuable insights and practical guidance throughout the workshop, ensuring that everyone had a rewarding and informative experience.

Thank you to all the participants who joined us today, embracing the challenge and pushing their limits. We hope you gained valuable knowledge that you can apply to your training and continue to grow as martial artists.

Stay tuned for more exciting workshops and events coming up at HSTS Taekwon-Do. Together, we will keep striving for excellence and reaching new heights in our martial arts journey!
